Part of me wants to go puke the other part of me wants to go cry. Humans are so cruel. This goes to show how one person’s brilliant mind can create such horror. One person always has an impact it only takes ONE to screw up the world.
An architect student by the name of Andre Ford developed what he would like to consider a new humane alternative way to raise chickens for meat. He discovered if you remove the Cerebral Cortex of the Chicken’s brain they do not mind their cramped conditions creating the headless chicken theory. If you only keep the part of the brain that allows the chicken to keep in homeostasis it will still grow but it will not feel pain or care about being in cramped conditions.
The benefits: You can place more of these chickens in smaller spaces. The factory farms could downsize their buildings while staying “cruelty” free. These chickens will not be able to grow normally because they cannot move on their own so they will not have the brain structure to do so! Of course Andre Ford has a solution to this. Electrical shock. Yes the chicken will receive electrical shock to the muscles to replace natural movement. This is not considered cruel by some people because the chicken will not be able to feel it. The other benefit it is cruelty free from slaughter.
These chickens will feel no pain at all their entire lives. I assume this beheading process is done while they are chicks. However I cannot find a lot of information on how this process is accomplished.
Do you call this new form of farming cruelty free? I do not see how it would be cruelty free for you. Imagine being born and being taken straight back to surgery. Where your head is almost removed and they stuff tubes into your body so you do not ever feel pain at all in your entire life. Then you are put into a small room where every second you are shocked by electricity. Do you call that cruelty? I do because it goes against the very laws of nature. The freedom of choice.
Please do not support these new barbaric methods and choose life and be vegetarian!
